Doncha love how Anglo-Americans embrace their foreignness during drinking holidays? Every other day of the year, folks curse soccer and the Euro way, but they ride the heck out of that 0.00001-percent Irish/English/Dutch/whatever blood that pumps through their hollow veins when stuff like St. Patricks Day rolls around.
Dont be surprised if everybody is suddenly German and not Austrian or Belgian, because thats not as hip when Way Out West Oktoberfest posts up at Tempe Beach Park. Along with a beer garden, there will be three stages featuring live music, including polka.
